Missed part of The Mariotti Show?
The Jay Mariotti Podcast for Monday, August 18: With the chaotic unrest in Ferguson, Mo., reminding us that racial violence in America is only a hater’s trigger pull away, it’s important to show how sports can unite us instead of ripping us apart. One such powerful story is Mo’ne Davis, the 13-year-old, African-American girl who is dominating the Little League World Series with her pitching arm and charisma. The other is the Ice Bucket Challenge, a national drenching craze that raises money and awareness for ALS based on the fight of Pete Frates. Johnny Manziel isn’t ready to start in the NFL, but the Browns may overlook his shortcomings because they can dominate the American sports scene for the next month. Bad idea — turnovers and injuries coming. Notre Dame has has too many recent scandals to act high and mighty. Why are Kelly, Swarbrick congratulating themselves for transparency on academic scandal when they should be preventing these problems to begin with? And why make names public before they are found guilty? Notre Shame. Who isn’t rooting for Derrick Rose? Why are we hearing nothing from Tony Stewart? Dodgers may be haunted by no deal for pitcher at deadline.
The Mariotti Show streams live M-F noon to 3 ET.
